Why Most Herbal Formulas Don't Work!
A Message from Dr. Richard Schulze - A Master Herbalist
When I first started
my own healing journey in the 1960's, one of my first great shocks was that most health
products didn't work. This included all of the herbal formulas I tried. I was constantly
amazed at the weakness of these so-called intense herbal formulas that were supposed to
change my life. They didn't. I would take them diligently and nothing would happen. Out of
frustration, and my own illness, I remember taking 20 to 100 times the dosages, the whole
bottle, and still little or no effect. In order to get myself well from a terminal heart
disease, I had to break all the rules and make it up as I went. Because I broke the
rules, I got well.
In the 1970's, I started helping others get well and opened
up my clinic. From the early days of my clinical practice, I was especially interested in
helping people with serious illness and degenerative diseases. Almost all other graduates
from the various institutes I attended worked mainly on young, healthy people who wanted
to be a bit healthier, but I was obsessed with emergency treatment and the sick and dying.
The same useless herbal formulas that failed me years before were now failing to help any
of my patients. They thought they were doing something wrong and this is why they were
coming to see me. I was forced to improve upon the crude formulas I had developed to heal
myself and also create new formulas that worked. Why were all the herbal formulas useless?
Why didn't they work? As far as I could see, there were three main reasons for this.
Reason #1: Antique Formulas
Many of the herbal formulas
available were designed in the middle-to-late 1800's, some even earlier. The 1800's were
very different times. Today, we have junk food restaurants on every corner, get less
exercise and have more stress than probably ever before in history. What it took to
stimulate and cleanse Wyatt Earp and Buffalo Bill 150 years ago doesn't work today. Even
some of the more modern herbal formula available were still designed in the 1940's
or l950's. This is still over 40 years ago when herbs were looked at as a cute little
hobby to alleviate headaches and tired feet, not cure life-threatening disease. Many other
modern formulas are just remakes of these ancient formulas; the herbs are just shuffled
and a so-called new formula is dealt. These formulas just don't work.
Reason #2: Weak formulas, wimpy dosages, poor
manufacturing and poor quality herbs
Most modern American
natural healers and herbalists have been educated and grew up in a hostile legal
and political environment. Recent history reveals that the AMA and other organizations
have been on a witch-hunt for practicing herbalists and have jailed many. Out of fear,
most herbalists and manufacturers want to make sure that no one ever gets a strong action
or has any reactions with their products, even a cleansing reaction. They
feel it's far safer to make products that have little or no effect. Like medical doctors
today, treatment and therapy parameters are designed by the hospital legal departments to
minimize financial repercussions and malpractice law-suits, not always what is best for
One way these herbal manufacturers assure their safety, not your health, is
to design formula with very small amounts of the potent herbs, or none at all.
Then, to be really safe, they suggest a dosage that is so low it's useless. They don't
want to take any risks. To further weaken any potency, many manufacturers have abandoned
the tried-and-true methods of old herbalists for quick extraction processes, high tech
(high heat) machinery, freeze-dried herbs, ignoring the moons and seasons, mostly to make
a quick buck. The result, most herbal products I see today are worthless junk. Many
manufacturers are more concerned that their product tastes good or has a great-looking
label than with whether you will get well using it. I also see labels loaded with
sophisticated laboratory-testing results for potency, trying to convince you that the
colorless, tasteless and odorless water inside will actually benefit you. How stupid do
they think we are?
One of the worst aspects of many herbal formulas today is the poor quality of herbs used.
The vast majority of herbal products are made from herbs grown outside the US. There is
only one reason for this: they are cheap. Herbs brought in from India, China, Egypt,
Mexico or Eastern Europe cost literally pennies a pound. I never used these poor quality
herbs in my clinic. I always used American organically grown herbs that can cost over 20
times as much. I have visited these countries and found filthy, disgusting growing
conditions, toxic pollution and out-of-control use of pesticides and insecticides. When we
travel to these countries, we don't drink the water, don't even eat the food. Then why
would we want to use herbs grown there?
In the last two years, there have been numerous people
getting sick after using famous herbal formulas because the herbs were contaminated with
human fecal waste. If this isn't bad enough, most of these contaminated herbs, when
brought into the United States, are gassed with Ethylene Oxide, an antibacterial gas that
is known to cause cancer and also cause mutations in unborn children. In fact, the vast
majority of organic herbs are even sterilized with this gas because the manufacturers are
scared to use unsterilized herbs. In the last two years, I have done much to expose this
corruption and I have been attacked by almost everyone in the herb industry, even my
so-called friends. Even though they are well-aware of the problems, I have affected their
income and they are plenty mad. Even the ones who haven't attacked me wont go on record to
expose the industry or speak the truth. Most of my colleagues, out of fear of prosecution,
write books and magazine articles, gather at meetings of their guilds, run schools and
teach, but rarely have ever worked with a patient. It is illegal for an American herbalist
to run a clinic and cure patients from illness and disease using American Herbs. This
leads to the 3rd reason why most herbal formulas don't work.
Reason #3: Theory, not practical, clinical experience
Why is it that most modern
herbal formulas, designed by many of my colleagues, don't work? As I walk down the isles
of modern day health food stores, I see hundreds of herbal products and recognize many of
the names on the bottles. Many are my students and many are friends, but few of these
armchair herbalists ever ran a clinic and would know the difference between a heart attack
and indigestion. What they don't tell you on the bottle is that they developed these
formulas after countless hours of research reading books and searching computer data
bases, but they have had no clinical results or cures. You may be the first human to ever
put these formulas in your mouth. A few of their herbal hypothesis are good, and in years,
probably decades, some might prove to be important discoveries. I also know most of these
formula will be tossed in the garbage where they belong.
Running my clinic, I
learned very quickly what it takes to get people well. Theories don't, hypothesis don't,
but quality herbs, potent formulas and large dosages do. The formulas, dosages and
programs on the following pages are the result of 10 years of healing myself and an
additional 18 years of clinical experience. They work!
